Spring term parents’/carers’ evening

Appointments are available to meet with your child’s teacher (YR to Y6) on Wednesday 8 February 2017, 3.30-7.00pm. Appointments for parents/carers of nursery pupils will be arranged shortly.

The appointment system can be accessed from:


Appointments will be for 10 minutes. Booking will be on a first come, first served basis and the booking system is now open.

In order to login to the system, you will need the following information relating to your child, as held in our database:

  • First name
  • Surname
  • Date of birth

You will also need to enter the details we have on record for you. If you have recently changed your title or surname, for example, and not informed us, we will be expecting you to login with the details we have on record. The email address you enter is only used to receive a confirmation of your appointment. If the system gives you an error when you login, it will not be the email address that is the problem.

If you do not have access to the Internet, or experience any problems with using the system, please contact the school and ask to speak with a member of the administration team.

Class teachers will meet with you on an individual basis to provide clear feedback on your child’s learning.

If possible, year 6 pupils should attend with their parent/carer.
